This is a pale yellow, fresh, citrussy dry white that would be perfect served with light salads or seafood, or just on its own.
Bright and vivacious, this aromatic Sauvignon Blanc has classic zesty aromas and a lifted, fresh finish but good weight and a lovely balance. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from the Curico Valley. Curico's Mediterranean climate is a result of the mountainous coastal range that shields the valley from the cooling influences of the Pacific Ocean. As a result the Sauvignon Blanc from this region tends towards a riper style, although the cool evenings ensure the grapes are able to retain freshness.
Montes was established in 1988 by Aurelio Montes, Douglas Murray, Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand, with the aim of producing the best wines in Chile from the best regions. We have long admired Montes and what they have done for Chilean wine over the past three decades. Their wines are consistently good because they are meticulous throughout the entire production process. Montes own 800 hectares of vineyards in Apalta and Marchigue located in Colchagua Valley as well a single vineyard Zapallar, located in coastal Aconcagua Valley. Their own vineyards cover 75% of their requirements. The other 25% of fruit is produced on vineyards they have planted, cultivated and picked. In other words, they control everything except the ownership of the land.
